On Nov. 29, 1954, a yearling Landrace boar was admitted to the Stange Memorial Clinic. The accompanying history was as follows: The boar had settled several sows in spite of difficulty in serving them and normal libido seemed to be somewhat retarded. A noticeable quantity of ejaculate appeared to be evacuated from the vulva of the sows serviced. Occasionally, the penis was observed protruding from the prepuce 4 to 6 inches. In all other aspects the animal appeared normal.
